What is the Year 7 Literacy and Numeracy Catch-up Premium?
The DfE has made available additional funds to schools to improve the progress of students, known as the Year 7 Catch-Up Premium. Bentley Wood High School receives Year 7 Literacy and Numeracy Catch-Up Premium to improve the attainment of pupils who have achieved below 100 in reading and/or mathematics at the end of Key Stage 2.
Therefore, these students will require additional support in order to ensure that they consistently exceed their target grade from the outset. Basic skills development in Y7 and beyond, supported by targeted interventions can aid this process.
To improve progress and attainment of students in English and/or mathematics who have not achieved above 100 in reading and/or mathematics at Key Stage 2 and thus ensure full access to the secondary curriculum.
